, sandra fluke will take to the stage. but that is being overshadowed by a bombshell reversal of the dnc platform as the party has re-inserted references to god and jerusalem. you may recall that earlier, delegates approved a platform that blatantly admitted such words. but fox news has confirmed that the president personally interceded to halt the proceedings and have the language reinstated. however, that task was far from easy because when the convention chair held a voice vote to authorize the amendment, he couldn't win over the two-thirds majority that he needed. watch this. >> all those delegates in favor, say aye. all those delegates opposed, say no. in the opinion of the -- let me do that again... all of those delegates... in favor say aye.

sure we didn't miss that point. sandra fluke was given a high profile speaking slot to put forth her vision of the country. >> an america in which states humiliate women by forcing us to endure invasive ultrasounds that we don't want. and our doctors say that we don't need. an america in which access to birth control is controlled by people who will never use it. >> bill: now, ms. fluke came across as smug and immature in my opinion. in fact writing in the "wall street journal" peggy noonan called ms. fluke a quote, a ninny, a narcissist, and a fool, unquote. dennis miller also had a great line he said the democrats are for cradle to grave entitlements. it's getting to the cradle that's the hard part. then it was caroline kennedy who offended millions of christians worldwide when she said this. >> as a catholic woman i take reproductive health seriously. and today it is under attack. this year alone, more than a dozen states have passed more than 40 restrictions on women's access to reproductive healthcare. that's not the kind of future i want for my daughters or your daughters. now

. >> planned parenthood, sandra fluke. they all want that. >> when that element of the democratic party kind of takes over, i think it does have the possibility of hurting democrats in a general election. remember bill clinton's formulation for the democratic platform in 1992 the one he used in every single speech he gave is that he does believe in a woman's right to choose, but abortion should be safe, legal, and rare. and that i think that is the most most democrats have, most americans have. closely called question on whether or not this should be a right to choose, but i think you still have a majority support for it right now. but where the public support tends to fall off is when some common sense restrictions are not allowed. >> bill: right. that's what caroline kennedy and fluke and all these people were saying. listen, don't be you limiting me. we want to choose anything. >> they seem to be talk more about contraception than abortion. >> bill: no, i think that's a strawman. i really think that's a ghost issue, that got sandra fluke a lot of publicity. the majority of americans don't
